Gateway MT6451 Laptop; bought used and came with Vista system restore disks - no thanks. Had heard good things about recent Ubuntu success with the Broadcom (4311) chipset for wireless.
After full install of Kubuntu, used KPackage to update all packages and install ndiswrapper and the bcm 802.11 STA driver.
Should I also install the "fwcutter" package?
I'm not at home right now, so don't have access to the laptop in question (currently wired), but will try to get details about the bash responses pasted in later tonight.
I was hoping this would "just work." Does re-starting help? Thanks in advance...
